but by the fbi and when it comes to diplomatic security and the security of our diplomatic facilities by the accountability review board established by secretary clinton. more broadly, this is a topic as a matter of policy that was discussed in an enlightening way last night in this debate. when it comes to afghanistan, the president, working with countless allies, have established a policy to draw down our forces in afghanistan end to end that war by 2014. you know, what you saw last night was a debate about whether or not that is the policy. in this president is committed to bringing our forces home from afghanistan. the purpose, as the vice president said, of setting a deadline, is to make it clear to the government as it was made clear to the government in baghdad and iraq, that they began to take increasing responsibility for their own security, so that when it comes to fighting and sometimes dying for the sake of afghan and the afghan people, the afghan forces increasingly take on that responsibility. not american men and women. that is why we were drawing on those forces there.
